- Pour half of the quantity of liquid in the base of a 26 cm loaf mold, set on top dill and zest of lemon.
- Refrigerate so the gelatine sets.
- Pour the rest of gelatine liquid and refrigerate again till completely set. This is done so that the dill and the lemon zest looks imbedded in the gelatine.
- In the meantime combine the smoked trout filets, the cream cheese, mayonnaise, 1 sachet of gelatine powder (follow instructions on the sachet) onion lemon juice, and mix well with a blender until you obtain a thick paste.
- Now you can add the whole green peppers, chili flakes, and dill.
- Spread on top of the gelatine in the mold.
- Refrigerate overnight.
- Next morning, using a thin and flat spatula, separate the edges of the mousse so that it will be easier to transfer to a rectangular platter.
- Heat the top of the mold with a burner. The mousse will drop to the platter.
- Cut with a sharp knife into slices.
